  • During the “Mahalaya” festival, Goddess Durga is invited to visit Earth for a week. Everyone’s attention is drawn to the deity idol, also known as Chokkhu Daan.
  • On the first day, a large, exquisitely crafted idol of Maa Durga is installed on decorated Podiums throughout the city, and the worship space at homes is cleansed and a Kalash is placed as a sign of the goddess. After the idol is set up, a ceremony is performed on Saptami to invoke her holy presence. This is known as Pran Pratishthan.
  • Kola Bou (banana bride) is a small banana plant that is bathed in the surrounding river, dressed in a sari, and said to be able to absorb goddess’ spirit and divinity.
  • On Ashtami, the goddess is worshipped in the form of a virgin girl in a ceremony known as Kumari Puja, which is held to maintain the holiness of the female energy and its spread in society.
  • On the final day of Puja, the Goddess returns to her husband’s home, and the idol is brought outside for immersion. Every married woman offers red powder (Sindoor) to Maa Durga and daubs herself with marriage, fertility and child bearing.
